Created from pure cotton and designed, woven and made entirely in South Africa at Mungo Design's mill just outside Plettenberg Bay in the Western Cape, the subtly patterned Tawulo towel has been one of Mungo's many instant hits. And now it's available in a new colourway – bright and breezy Soleil. Tawulos make brilliant beach and swimming towels, and this understated yet cheerful shade of yellow will add a touch of sunny optimism to any bathroom.

If you've never seen Mungo's weaving mill in action, here's a chance to get behind the scenes. Filmmaker Julian Culverhouse spent a day getting into the Mungo rhythm, and the result is this short film, which captures a bit of the daily routine.

For more information and to buy Tawulo towels, which are available in a range of colours and in both bath sheet and hand towel sizes, visit the Mungo Design website.
